#Shocking Update: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer talks about taking Marcus Rashford off penalty duties for Manchester United

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer insists Marcus Rashford will continue to take penalties after missing one in the defeat to Crystal Palace at Old Trafford. Manchester United suffered their first defeat of the new season to the Eagles, with Patrick van Aanholt scoring an injury-time winner for the visitors. Rashford took on the penalties duties after Paul Pogba’s miss against Wolves, but hit the post. Solskjaer has already explained Pogba and Rashford share the spot-kick responsibilities and the United boss insists Rashford will continue to take penalties. ‘Fine margins,’ Solskjaer told MUTV about Rashford’s miss.

‘We’re disappointed but I’m sure Marcus will look at his penalty again, but he’ll definitely step up again.’ Solskjaer continued to dismiss the penalty drama surrounding his players after two missed in a row. He told Match of the Day: ‘Two games, two missed penalties. It’s part and parcel of it.

‘Sometimes it happens. I have missed a few myself. ‘If we score them it’s a different story. If we keep putting ourselves in those positions we will get more penalties and we will score. ‘It is just one of those things. We trust them to score again.’
